We are Tiziana Turcato and Marta Hereu. We met studying design, between needles, thimbles and patterns, in a school where sewing is still taught as a trade and where we had the opportunity to learn among students of all ages, sharing life lessons and life experiences.

As time went by we discovered that we had many things in common. We both come from large families where wearing hand-me-downs of older siblings, cousins or friends was common, teaching us to love pieces of clothing with history. We both have a tendency to spend hours searching through old closets and flea markets, looking for “clothes with feeling”, those pieces that lift your spirits as soon as you put them on.

BIRD was born from our need to develop a brand that would allow us to capture our creativity, our knowledge of fashion design, pattern construction and sewing, as well as our passion for life.

 


 

Somos Tiziana Turcato y Marta Hereu, nos conocimos estudiando moda, entre agujas y patrones en una escuela donde te enseñan a coser con dedal y un oficio como antaño, donde te formas junto a gente de todas las edades y con quien compartes vivencias y experiencias de vida.

Con el tiempo descubrimos que teníamos muchas cosas en común, ambas veníamos de familias numerosas donde heredar prendas de tus familiares o amigos era algo común, así aprendimos a amar la ropa con historia pasadas. Solemos pasar horas rebuscando en armarios ajenos o mercadillos “ropa con sentimiento”, esa que con solo ponértela cambia tu estado de animo.

BIRD nace de nuestra necesidad de desarrollar una marca que nos ayude a plasmar nuestra creatividad, nuestros conocimientos de diseño, costura, patronaje y nuestra pasión por la vida.
